Our founder member, Jane Emery recognised the absence of one-to-one support for those struggling with (or without) a diagnosis of this
condition. She became our first GAIN chair, when she set up the support group in 2006.
After Jane stepped down, due to ill health, Christine Barrs served for several years as chair. With the help of her committee, Christine did a great deal to put GAIN on the map. She also put a lot into building the team that took over from her. She stood down at the AGM on April 17th 2013 and Edward Mayes was duly elected as chair.
